Black Forest, Germany - 15th June 2013

By: Biggi

Hi

yesterday we made a trip through the "Simonswälder Tal" which is a beautiful valley. Lots of motorcyle riders love to drive there because of all the curves and the nice view.

That's what I call a black forest! Fir trees make this forest looking dark and it must have been a frightfull place in former ages.

Look at those old and typical farmhouses
http://img5.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/bat2a3pqyu6v7h.jpg

On this sign you can read whats the name of the three valleys and in which direction they are when you look around from this spot.

View up the hill, some fields of grass, some birch trees, but mostly fir trees. http://img5.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/bat4y7ojgnhwrt.jpg

Some group pictures of me and the TV-gang.

Villingen-Schwenningen, Germany - 3rd July 2013

By: Biggi

Hi

as promised Biggi took us for a walk in the sorrounding area of the hospital.

We found a nice garden area
http://img4.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/hpim3003vmqnrc74lu.jpg

with nice yellow flowers
http://img4.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/hpim3007ytul698j7o.jpg

Then Lavender Bear smelled a familiar scent and found:
http://img4.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/hpim30098dn4h6rgml.jpg
LAVENDER!

Some nice little white bush roses
http://img4.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/hpim3013835newd279.jpg

Then we found climbing roses. As we wanted to sniff we climbed up there
http://img4.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/hpim3014tchq479i5y.jpg
http://img4.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/hpim3015921tyewjz4.jpg

After that we took a break on a bench
http://img4.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/hpim30164i5fzvjrg0.jpg
http://img4.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/hpim3017vjxd1lec3b.jpg

and I took a sunbath on a big leaf
http://img4.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/hpim30185z3wiuh6nc.jpg

Before we had to go back, we climbed on lots of branches to get a better view.

Host's Home, Germany - 14th July 2013

By: Biggi

Hi Mom,

this weekend our host and her roommate invited us to join them while making strawberry marmelade.

Look how many strawberries we had bought.
http://img4.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/hpim3030blmrv0w4j9.jpg
They looked very delicious.

First we washed them in a bowl of water.
http://img4.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/hpim3035k8iqvesln3.jpg

Then we cut them and took of the leafs.
http://img4.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/hpim3042dn0zt2g8f5.jpg

Later we put them in a cooking pot. And then put in special sugar.
http://img4.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/hpim3044zmxho48759.jpg

Just a few minutes boiling
http://img4.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/hpim3050uxq0lrj8ws.jpg
and the marmelade was ready to be put in jam jars.

See how much jars we filled?
http://img4.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/hpim3051zm1ar79sy6.jpg
http://img4.fotos-hochladen.net/uploads/hpim3052tmy8nwv9e0.jpg
We were allowed to taste a bit. Yummie! I'm looking forward to next breakfast.

I wanna eat that much

Island Lindau, Germany - 15th August 2013

By: Biggi

Hi,

since my host wasn't and still isn't in a good health condition, I couldn't post updates regularly.

So this is about our trip to the Island Lindau in the Lake Bodensee.

We stopped to take a break of driving and getting some fresh air. What a nice view on the lake and the surrounding area.

and the monastery again

At Lindau was a exhibition of the famous painter Miró. Therefore a lot of merchandising is reminding of him. Like these flower tubs.

Uchte, Germany - 31st October 2013

By: -[Dino]-

Hello Mom,

today I arrived at my new host's place.  B)

Katharina seems very nice and there are two other TVs here: Oink is on holiday here and Lieselotte is Katharina's own TV.

I'm sorry that there are no arrival pictures!  :( I arrived just in time to come to a party with the others and they all were in a big hurry today.

But nonetheless I wanted to let you know that I arrived here safely. :)

I will soon tell you of my new adventures here.  :cyclops:

xoxo

friend's place, Germany - 31st October 2013

By: -[Dino]-

Hi Mom!

Today way a very special and exciting day!

We were in a big hurry the whole day. Because in the evening Katharina took us to her friend's place where she and her friend celebrated their birthsdays.

Today it's the 25th birthday of one of her friends and tomorrow it will be Katharina's.  B)

In this part of Germany it is a tradition that unmarried women turning 25 get a garland made out of empty boxes because they turn into old frumps that day which is the same word as box in German and in this case isn't a (purely) negative word anymore. Usually around the front door or the fence. But Katharina's friends changed the tradition a little and made a skirt out of boxes.

Here Katharina's friend is still wearing it, but at midnight it was Katharina's turn.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-saREoNzJWCA/UnaICHDMcwI/AAAAAAAAG3A/dddwg2OUUDY/s512/CIMG1951.JPG

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-80MrjEuQgl4/UnaIF7zYS-I/AAAAAAAAG34/RC0-OkGwIdI/s640/CIMG1965.JPG

As a big surprise Katharina and her friend got a big Snorlaxñata - a piñata made from paper mâché to look like the pokémon Snorlax.

Here is picture of it before it was "killed":

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-sQTJDpP_8TY/UnaIC_nL0rI/AAAAAAAAG3M/dzCY45rNl6A/s640/CIMG1953.JPG

And here you can see it after the attack:

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-f3rMnGLw6eU/UnaIEgbqhQI/AAAAAAAAG3s/oGaWtZC4pAM/s640/CIMG1963.JPG

After this exciting day it was soon time for us little toys to go to bed while the adults still talked and laughed until the wee hours of the morning. :)

I think I arrived just at the right time!  B)

Talk to you soon!

Uchte, Germany - 1st November 2013

By: -[Dino]-

Hello Mom!

Today it's Katharina's birthday. So we went to her grandma's place for some cake.  :cyclops:

We had a very special cake. It's called "Kalte Schnauze" or "Kalter Hund" and "Hedgehog slice" in English and is made of a special type of cookie and chocolate being piled alternatingly on top of each other and then put in the fridge over night.

And it's special because Katharina only eats it once a year on her birthday.

It's also very delicious!  B)

Hello Mom!

Today we went to a playground to get closer to completing my life mission. Katharina wasn't sure if it's complete already as it says "complete", but only 2/5.

So to make sure it's complete either way we visited a playground and played on the swing.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-Nuiw0ioUYgo/UppTUWVoBPI/AAAAAAAAHUk/Ej8sUAOS_8w/s640/CIMG1986.JPG

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-8JMrmHoYDUE/UppTUvF-8-I/AAAAAAAAHUo/65dg7xFKiGc/s640/CIMG1987.JPG

It was fun!  B)

Talk to you soon!

Stolzenau, Germany - 21st November 2013

By: -[Dino]-

Hello Mom!

Today we played on two more playgrounds as we visited Katharina's aunt. :)

First we played on a bouncy toy:

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-CG3VIWFWuAk/UppTVbfcI2I/AAAAAAAAHUw/fogM4yv3BhI/s640/CIMG2005.JPG

Then we took a little walk to get to another playground where we played on a climbing frame:

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-KYBvQW-sv2c/UppTWENWwPI/AAAAAAAAHU4/4vBo2_NK3Zo/s512/CIMG2006.JPG

It was a lot of fun! :cyclops: But it was very cold *brrr* so we couldn't stay outside very long...

But we hope that now my life mission is complete once and for all. ;)

Yours Batgirl
